Hold the Front Page!

Yar'Adua is alive. The BBC Hausa service spoke to him at 1403hrs GMT from the hospital in Germany. That's Nigeria for you, we can't even rely on what should be very credible sources.

The question is now: will the rumour have achieved its intended effects by those who began it...

Opposition tactics! A largely bourgeois effort. The work of the hopelessly desperate. But what can you do?

This just goes to prove why I advice EVERYONE never to believe ANYTHING written by the Nigerian Press and the so-called investigative journalists of Elendu Reports.

Opinions on Nigerian politics are one a kobo, every Tom, Dick and Chinyere has one and worse still they put across their conjecture and bougus theories as if it were the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Sheesh. I almost forgot the part where they then use God's name to seal their "truth"
